Automatic lock componets when opening an assembly (See Case 12415387)

Automatic lock componets when opening an assembly (See Case 12415387)

Windchill

When opening an assembly with the preface set to automatic
lock objects on add to workspace. PDMLINK does lock all components. When
opening an assembly from local drive and components are in PDMLINK with server
turn on PDMLINK does not lock any of the components.

Case Reference: [ref:_00DA0YLPa._500F0WawuQ:ref]

Case Subject: With Prefernce (Automatically lock objects added to
workspace)set to YES. Does not lock objects that are downloaded to workspace
when opening an assembly from a network drive. The assembly is using parts from
PDMLINK.

Hi Billy,

This case is assigned to me. I tried replicating the use case and found
it to be reproducible.

Objects available on Windchill server doesn’t get locked , when you are
retrieving the copy of  assembly from local disk. This is the current
behaviour Windchill PDMlink.

“Automatically lock objects added to workspace” preference works with
explicit “Add to Workspace” command.

Even if you open any assembly  from Windchill via File ->Open,
then also locking of object doesn’t happen.

The functionality that you are looking for is currently not available,
this would be considered as enhancement on the product. Please feel free to add
